In their final game of the season, girls’ varsity soccer fell 1-4 to the Edison Chargers, the highest ranked team in the Sunset League.

The game started off poorly for the Barons, as Edison scored two goals within the first twenty minutes of play. The Barons, however, stayed in the game with near goals from seniors Kylie Wilson and Marissa Lynch. Senior goalie Kiana Flores also contributed to stopping the Chargers with five consecutive blocks.

In the second half, an own goal was scored on the Barons’ goal, leaving them defenseless and down by a deficit of 0-3. This, however, would not last because the very next play was a goal off of a jumbled cross. The Barons were still barely hanging in against one of the top teams in the league.

The game proceeded with another goal from Edison and many close attempts including a free kick by Fountain Valley. Kylie Wilson would have had a breakaway goal if it weren’t for an offside call and bad ball placement.

The game came to an end, with goalie Kianna Flores getting injured because of an overly aggressive Edison player slide tackling her in the goal. This event took away the last momentum that the Barons had and stalled the game for ten minutes. The game ended with a score of 1-4 and ended the season with a record of 12-9 overall. The Barons are still waiting to see if they will get into CIF, but many are doubtful because of their 2-7 record for the league.
